Hello to all

Is there a way to find and replace a string in a group of tags (MP3, FLAC, etc.), witout changing the entire tag? Perhaps with Masstagger?

Example : TITLE: "Bittehoven - Symphony No. 5"
find "Bitt" in all TITLE tags in selected group, replace with "Beet"

TIA

Ok, this is still the wrong forum (General would have been the correct one), but it is much more clearer now, what you want to achieve.

You could do this in the following way:
1. Mark all affected tracks in a playlist
2. Open the properties dialog.
3. Right click on "Track title" and select "Format from other fields"
4. Use the pattern $replace(%title%,Bitt,Beet)

Note: $replace will replace all occurences in a string, therefore you should be as most specific as possible. Here for example: $replace(%title%,Bitthoven,Beethoven)

Format TITLE using:

$replace(%title%,'Bitthoven','Beethoven')

C.

EDIT: Too slow

Sorry - I just took a guess at the right forum.

Great advice. Works like a charm. Thanks a million. I'd never have found it, because "Format from other fields" is unclear.

Thanks again
